If you want action, excitement, and tons of fun; look no further! (by lizardx78)
Come on, its BEASTMASTER! How can you deny that this movie is one of the top movies in the eighties pantheon of excellent trash. I mean so much stuff happens in this movie and you are never left wondering what is going on. Every move is perfectly placed and paced. Marc Singer is perfectly cast as Dar. He has a legendary physique in this move, and some shots look like a Boris Vallejo painting. Tanya Roberts is perfect as his feminine foil. Jon Amos, bad ass. Rip Torn does a magnificent job as MAAX. The Deathguards, those guys running around like gorillas with spiked gloves, truly frightening. <more>
Then you have the tree people, the acid bat guys, come on what could be cooler. Though above all I have to give it up for the animals in this picture. The animals take the cake, the ferrets, the tiger, and falcon, are majestic creatures of beauty that often surpass the actors in finding moments of true beauty and comedy. Better than Conan, Beastmaster taps the main vein of the seventies fantasy feel in every way imaginable.
Tell the "remake" crowd to steer clear of this one before they ruin yet another man epic from the age when Caucasian men had a set. The same crowd who ruined "Conan the Barbarian".Oh, yeah, that Tongan looking L.A. guy who talks in valley boy paragraphs instead of short heavily accented sentences looks and sounds more like he grew up in a land just south of Vanaheim and Asgard, than the actual Austrian who was born south of Scandinavia and Germany.Who cares about the cruelty to animals that took place behind the scenes no one would know about without the PETA campaign to <more>
keep it relevant in 2018?Women need to quit imposing 2000's gender rage onto the 1980's male behaviors showcased that were common place for 4k years prior to the 90's fem culture revolt.And, no, brown eyes, a darker complexion, and a more thinking hero are not good idea's for, Dar of the Emurites!Just watch the movie and keep your I can't thing with my own brain thumbs off of your text app.Go to hell Hollywood! You White shaming, animal crazy, man haters!Leave this one alone! It's perfect as is!
I used to have this movie on a video cassette about 20 years ago, when I was around 7-8 years old. I remember watching it several times when I was little. I guess I was fascinated by the human-animal bond that existed between the Beastmaster and his animal friends, or maybe by the dark age placement of the action - the time of mysticism and sacrifice, as the movie trailer says - with all its magic, sorcery, witches... Anyway, I remember liking this movie a lot and it being one of my favorites.Little by little, cable & satellite TV replaced my old VCR which ended being put in its box <more>
I-don't-know-where. The cassettes also.It is not long ago when I started talking to a friend of mine about old VCRs and old movies and stuff like this, when suddenly I remembered I used to have a favorite movie. Unfortunately I couldn't remember its name... I remembered only very few things - mainly the appearance of some masked men from over a hill, a pyramid with a lot of stairs and a fire on its top where people were sacrificed and also a tunnel with traps. ...Nothing about the plot, not even the existence of the human-animal bond... nothing else.I had this only thing in my head: to find this movie! I took the VCR out of its box, connected it to the computer and watching every single video cassette I could find... unfortunately I couldn't find my movie. I started reading plot summaries on IMDb, I started watching movie trailers... hundreds of titles, sorting them, eliminating those that did not match my memories, adding others that might be it... After a very long time I ended up with a list of about 15 movies. And The Beastmaster was the one that matched best everything. I can't describe to you the happiness when realizing that THIS was the movie! While watching it... everything came back to my memory: the 3 witches, the people working the fields near the village, the appearance of the Junes from over the hill, the eyed-ring, the temple tunnel with those monster-arms coming out, the colored eyes of those monsters, the children sacrifices, the fight on the temple's stairs... everything.To conclude... I can say that The Beastmaster is a great, excellent, magnificent, marvelous, fascinating, superb, extraordinary movie... Even nowadays I can say that this is one of my favorite movies. I enjoyed watching it the same way as when I was little. The plot is great, the adventures of the hero are fantastic... When watching it, I feel like I'm living during those ages... Everything is so... I don't know... realistic, mysterious.Ahh... one more thing. I love to play computer games where the action takes place in the woods, in temples, in places where you can always expect a monster or an enemy to appear... And I think now I have the explanation why I like this kind of games :D C. S.
For one of the slew of quickly produced movies of the 80's this one is pretty good. You've got Marc Singer when he was young and fit not leathery and ancient like in the later movies of this series and Tanya Roberts who is hot in this film. You've got swordfights, sorcery, the whole works. That said, I did find the ferrets a little annoying, but that's just me.On the whole the movie works well and there are some touches, like the flying humanoids that envelop and dissolve their prey, that just make the film.SUMMARY: Hero who can talk to animals sets out to overthrow an evil <more>
An unoriginal concept, with pleasantly original content (by ifitrocks)
As far as the Sword and Sorcery genre goes, this is it's shining star. A lot of people comment in negative ways bad acting, poor costumes, etc. but the're missing the point of this film style. Let me summarize: A man's village is slaughtered by a cult called the Jun Horde. He seeks revenge on them and follows their trail. He discovers he can communicate with animals, and travels with them. He also picks up some human companions along the way, including super-hot Tonya Roberts. Each one has their own reason to defy the Jun Horde. This revenge theme is typical of S & S films; <more>
muscle-bound hero, love interest, cool sidekicks, evil wizard, etc.. But this movie is loaded with creative and original material. Animal co-stars, at least three very skilled actors John Amos in particular , an incredible soundtrack, super-cool throwing weapons, and an emotional character. Conan came only months earlier, and had a much bigger budget. Even with that it pales in comparison to the much superior Beastmaster. All Conan does is mope and get angry, the only time he's even likable is when he's drunk. Plus everything he does is for himself. Dar on the other hand, risks his life to save strangers. He even reveals himself while unarmed to save a child. He can talk to animals, but doesn't control them. They are viewed as his friends, not servants, a good message if you ask me. He even turns down his birthright so he can live his own life. Conan, Dragonslayer, Ator, etc., used fake animals to engage the actors. The Beastmaster had two ferrets, a tiger, an eagle, horses, doves, and more interacting with very believable screen-presence. Even the scenes involving the tiger attacking the actors looked convincing. Dar also has a sense of humor, and isn't afraid to cry. What's more instead of having the bad guys on one side, and the good guys on the other, you have many gray areas in between. The bat people, the priests, the guards, the people who live inside town, the ones that live outside, the ancient sect that used to live in the temple, the witches, the death guards, the Jun Horde, even the animals themselves, all have their own outfits, motivations, and behaviors. This makes it a rich tapestry and very interesting to watch. The characters are layered so that they appear and disappear at the right time, every time. The scene involving the fire was real fire, they didn't have to rely on fancy, over-budgeted special effects. The only thing that comes close in this genre is Ladyhawke. It is a wonderful movie, and the only reason I didn't give it a ten/ten, is the scene where Tonya Roberts appears from the back of the skull in the temple. They never explained how she got there, or why she and Dar couldn't escape the way she came.
1980s Fantasy Romp that still entertains (by digideus-93-278129)
I have a massive soft spot for this movie. Unlike a lot of people, I actually saw the original UK Theatrical release in glorious 35mm, and seeing movies like this on the big screen during a period that gave birth to my love of cinema, it remains one of my favorite from my childhood.In a time when film studios were going mad for Star Wars rip offs, The Beastmaster was a welcome and overlooked gem amongst a pile of old stones. A very young Marc Singer who would go on to international fame in the series "V" and Dynasty stars in the title role and, I feel, carries if off successfully. <more>
The Addition of Rip Torn as mega bad guy, Mayax, brings gravitas to the antagonist in this.The movie is darker in tone than most others of the era, and the fact that Don Coscarelli of Phantasm fame was involved in this is no surprise. Here, his work is far more polished and well produced than the classic of 70s horror, and technically, the movie is a smörgåsbord of up to date film-making for the period . 35mm film, some nifty special effects and more dead things than you can shake a stick at.The only other movie of this era like this was Conan the Barbarian, which already had a bigger budget and star attraction of the rising legend that is Arnold Swartzenegger, but in direct comparison, Beastmaster still manages to entertain far more than Conan could manage, mostly down to the fact that its editing is competent and never dwells on one situation for too long. Add to that the brilliant soundtrack and you have a movie that does everything it sets out to do in a neat 2 hour package. it may seem like B movie fodder to todays audiences, but its still worth a watch in my estimation, mainly due to the fact that it still stands up as one of the best fantasy movies of the time. If I had to complain about anything, it would be the lack of information and background on the world that this film inhabits as well as the almost silent first 30 minutes that depends more on visual queues and ambiance than dialog. Some of the sword work in this in woefully inadequate to today's standards, but for the time, it was impressive, especially to a 12 year old me. Its upsetting to discover that the Tiger who player Ruuh died 2 years later following skin problems brought on by the black dye used in this movie. It still remains one of my favorite childhood memories and unlike the American audience that had constant re-runs on cable TV, we have had to rely on VHS and TV showings of this movie in the UK. Definitely worth watching and reliving memories of the 1980s
If only they made movies for kids like these again... (by elcopy)
Too bad movies from this genre are now all but extinct.Beastmaster was one of the best movies of the early 80'sSword & Magic movies along with Krull, Dragonslayer &Conan , if not the best. I even believe it inspired He-Manand the Masters of the Universe for those who as myselfwere children of the 80's. Later in the 80's some flickscame out, like Highlander and Willow, but couldn't help thedisappearance of the genre, which I feel very nostalgicabout. Please, please, please, I beg you: Ignore any sequelof this movie. Remain with this, a true classic.
Caw caw caw --- "He is the Beastmaster!" (by Figgiedan)
How can anyone not like the Beastmaster? It's what movies are all about - it's got a hero, his woman, a villain, sidekicks, animals, loincloths, violence and much much more! It's one of the earliest of films that HBO would play about 4 times a day so it was almost always available. John Amos from Roots and Good Times cheeses it up but damn, do I have a soft spot for the guy. Dar looks like my brother Eric. Rip Torn is a villain with bad teeth! The freaky eagle/vampire things are nutty. It's got ferrets - FERRETS in co-starring roles! Plus a panther and hawks and B-dialog and <more>
swords and last but not least "crazy-eyes" herself, Tonya Roberts! Yowza! It's basically a goulash of afternoon delight. Straight B an 85 - 8 out of 10. Caw caw! Catch it one time or a dozen, you'll love it.
Following "Conan the Barbarian", there were a lot of Barbarian trash movies in the 1980s. The best of them all was "Beastmaster" because it had creative production design, colorful photography and even some ideas of its own. Dar, the Beastmaster Marc Singer , can see through the eyes of animals and command them whenever he needs help. The evil priest Maax Rip Torn holds Dar's father, the king, prisoner as well as the slave girl Kiri Tanya Roberts whom Dar fell in love with. In this action-packed movie, we meet a lot of bizarre folks, like the scary batmen who can <more>
suck their victims dry if they catch them under their wings and still these are some of the good guys! or the berserkers who carry green worms in their brains to drive them crazy. Director/script writer Coscarelli was also in charge of the very successful horror movie "Phantasm", and that shows in the darker scenes. Tanya Roberts looked so good in rags she went on to make "Sheena" with equally little to wear. Marc Singer's muscles were memorable enough to get him signed many years later for 2 sequels which weren't half as good as the original, but still way better than the politically correct TV series 20 years later. Comparing the 113 minutes "director's cut" British DVD to the old 91 minutes German video tape version, these are the most important scenes previously omitted: 1 8 1/2 minutes of introduction, in which we learn how Maax was threatened by the king, hears the prophecy about the king's unborn son and asks a witch to abduct the baby from his mother's womb! . Probably it was felt it takes too long until we see the grown-up hero. The disadvantage is that we know less in the short version about Maax and his motives. 2 Still in the first third of the movie, a funny scene was cut in which Dar falls into quicksand, needs help from the animals - and rescues one of them in return. This scene is a charming illustration of the beginning of his friendship with the animals, but not necessary to understand the story. 3 In the last third of the movie, 3 scenes were cut in which the injured young prince is carried into a house, gets better and receives a gift from the Beastmaster. It seems this was cut as it slows down the movie and gives information about the boy only - who is not one of the main characters, anyway. There are also smaller cuts along the way, sometimes due to violence. Anyhow, go get "The Beastmaster" in this longer version!
